what else needs to be said????
Acadian Driftwood just brings tears to my eyes....
The recording is immaculate!!!!!
Before any of the faithful thought that there could be a vibe even approaching that which was evident when Jer was among us in physical form, Phil and his assortment of Friends brought the hope that we would survive and be able to shake our bones with the joy we had thought was gone with the passing of Jerry. Thank the HEAVENS for the continuation of the spirit and the persistence of these most talented musicians!

You NEED this show. You need it to survive. This right here is the best of the best; the band is firing on all cylinders and they never look back. This show never lets up, pulling you in until you're a wreckage of your former self. It hurts, but it hurts good.
Highlights? Everything! Seriously. Just a Little Light is an underrated Brent tune that gets a wonderful face lift courtesy of Warren Haynes. I wouldn't be surprised if the amps caught fire during the destructive Mason's > New Speedway. Eyes > Fire > Days Between > etc. - what else needs to be said? Hell, there's even a Mountain Jam! This is electric euphoria, a complete journey through the other side and back again.
This is easily my favorite PNF show, or at the very least in the top 5. Think I'm exaggerating? Try it yourself. The sound quality here is incredible save the unnecessary fade-ins beginning each disc. Pop it in and experience what this band was really capable of when they ripped it open and found their space.

in search of the jam!
I am desperately seeking a show at Portland Meadows in summer sometime between 2000 and 2002 that was one LONG ASS supersonic jam. Everyone else was complaining, "'where's a SONG, man," while I was dancin my ass off and lovin the never-ending jam.
I am downloading this as I write simply due to the review which speaks of a neverending jam.
More I say! More jam

This is one high-intensity jam from the Quintet! There are plenty of high points:
Half Step > Jam > Mountain Jam > Acadian Driftwood , Mason's Children > New Speedway Boogie > Jam, ALL of set 2 (one continuous jammin' segue).
And the sound is spectacular; cudos to Mike Boden's mastery of the Manley Variable-MU analog compressor. If you like a full (but not boomy) sound, you'll enjoy this one.
